Morris Visitor Publications Acquires Boston Where Magazine and Map

AUGUSTA, GA — April 3, 2006 Morris Visitor Publications has acquired the rights to publish Where magazine and Where Map in Boston.

Where Boston was previously an independent franchise, published by Visitor Marketing Inc. and owned by Elizabeth Carey. She will become group publisher in Boston, continuing to serve as publisher of the magazine and overseeing the Boston Guest Informant, an in-room, hardcover visitor book, and Boston Quick Guide, a portable, softcover visitor digest.

"Where Boston is a great addition to our company," said Mel Ullrich, president of Morris Visitor Publications. "We are excited about this partnership with Elizabeth. We will be able to take the success she has had with Where Boston and apply it to our other publications."

During her 20 years as publisher and owner of Where Boston, Carey developed the Silver Plume Award for Concierge of the Year. She also sits on the board of directors for the Greater Boston Convention and Visitor Bureau and is a board advisor to the Greater Boston Concierge Association.

"I am delighted to be part of the company because Morris has a very good reputation in the travel industry," Carey said. "I see it as an excellent opportunity to create unity with the other Morris products and better serve the community."

Where magazine is published in more than 43 markets in the U.S. and abroad. The magazine is published and edited locally, offering first-hand information on the city in which it is based.
